Hulk Goes Gray?
"It's a new Hulk," Avi Arad told SCI FI Wire. He continued: "A new direction, new size, new color, new attitude. No, anything that was done before is not in this movie." Since the original comic book character started as gray and became green later, that would make sense, but right now he's not making that outright statement. "Uh, we'll see. I don't know. It's a very different kind of Hulk. It's more of a love story. It's a kind of Hulk we loved in the show [the popular 1978 TV series that starred Bill Bixby], so it's more influenced by the show than anything else. It's very human, very touching, and [a new direction]." "The Incredible Hulk" will be released in 2008.

Now, on his blog, Spotnitz has written that a script for the movie is underway. He wrote: "The second 'X-Files' feature is finally in the works. A script is indeed in development, but I'm afraid that's all I can say." This is one of those projects for which I hope the best, but fear the worst.
